Going to work was the silliest thing I did today. Every single day I shake my head and wonder why I’m still there. Silly paycheck.

Thanks for the heads up about AAR. I voted for TROG because I loved every page, not because I’m a kiss-@ss or anything. 🙂

Do you know if the new P&P will also have shots of sheep gamboling across meadows? I am overly fond of that kind of thing. And I’m hoping for more arty shots of carriage wheels and horses hooves, too!

Oh, Janet, I SO needed this after the day I had at work. Too funny for words! Then again I am not surprised as I LOVED TROG!

I have to agree with Jane. The silliest thing I do every day is go back to my soul-sucking job. True, it does pay for little luxuries like food, toilet paper and living indoors, but there are days I wonder how much I really need those things!!

I shoveled snow. Now I long for Aleve and a rum drink in the tropics (Forbidden Shores, perhaps?).

Silly things?
I stayed up ALL NIGHT finishing my page proofs, sent them in time and went to sleep at 7:45 AM—and still got to Curves by 12:30 PM….well, 12:35

I voted for TROG

Okay, now O Divine One. No need to make the rest of us look like slackers!!

(of course, I’ve been a vegetable the rest of the day)

I’ve been working on two websites at once, so they might both be finished by V-day!

Not to mention that I just finished redesigning my own on a pure whim.

Oh thanks for the votes, Jane and Doglady.
I too have an exceptionally silly day job but even if I didn’t I don’t think I’d be nearly as industrious as Diane or Haven.

I was taken in by the first sighting of the BB. By the time the second wet shirt appeared, I was wondering what Janet had to drink. By the time the BBC regulations bit came on, I wondered no more.

The silliest thing I did today was blow off going to Curves in the morning because I was sleepy.

Yup, I voted.
